Why is there a picture of a Mallard on this page? Aliter 18:51, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Both the USGS page and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology page (both cited below) say that the black duck is a large dabbling duck so I changed it from the incorrect "medium-sized".
Identity of drake in lead photo
I suspect the male is a a 2nd or third generation hybrid: a backcross with a Mallard X Black Duck hybrid. It has green in the crown--a feature not shown by pure Black Ducks. Suggest we replace the photo. Natureguy1980 (talk) 03:54, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
